I did this list a few years ago but since I don't get around other flyers often it took me quite a long time to get through my old "Lust List".  I do enjoy trying out different kites & seeing how they trick though........So now I need a shot at:

Alpha Kites TNT,  I'd really, really like to give this kite a go. I've got some serious lust for this one.
Talon,  I guess I need a shot at the current wonder kite.
Deep Space UL, Since I asked for this in the past, I guess I should try it now that it's finally out.
Fearless Vented, What can I say?, I'm a sucker for Lam's kites.
Cosmic, Just because I haven't.
Androgyn, I like the way it looks trickin' in the videos but I've heard normal people aren't quite as competent with it. I'm willing to try though.
From my old list, I still haven't tried a Transfer.

Feel free to add your kites desire

Peace

Element- Just to say I had tried one.

Vendetta UL- Because Frazer keeps on about it being better than the Standard.

Deep Space UL- It's a DS, it's a UL, it's a DSUL!!!

Alphakites NRG- Probably still the leader in the "Kite bling" market. (~$550 w/out shipping)

K2- Wait...I have one coming already!

Since I like my std so much, I'd have to say the DSUL.  Also Fearless std and the re released Jam Session.  I really wanted one when they first came out but got a Stranger instead.

Any kite I haven't flown is on my list. It's a huge list.

Although Mr. Worley's list looked pretty good to me.  Smiley

Does that list have any consequences?  Undecided

Let's say I'd like to try out a
Fearless or SD
and could offer a
Xt.z
in temporarily exchange ...

Would also like to have a go with the:-
Seven from Sportkitedesign
K2
and a
Hydra.

Uhh, almost forgot, never had the pleasure of a
